Selläter - Strømstad coastal hiking
Updated: Jan 15, 2020
The coastal path from the picturesque fishing port Selläter to Strømstad city passes through several beautiful beaches. Here you can take inn the scent of the sea and enjoy the view of Bohuslän's archipelago accompenied by the sounds of seagulls.
The horseshoe-shaped port of Selläter is well protected from wind and waves. Selläter beach is the first you'll meet when you start on the coastal path.
Along the first part of the coastal path you pass several small piers.
And later more beaches, like this one in Båtsviken.
Because the beaches are shallow, small molos have been built to fascilitate immersion.
There are several viewpoints along the way where you can see the inner archipelago and even the Koster Islands.
In some places there are benches.
The trip ends at the bridge to Nøtholmen.
